Particle-Size Analyzer Options

March 5, 2008
Untitled Document Two new options for the Parsum IPP-70 in-line particle-size measurement probe are designed to simplify regulatory compliance for pharmaceutical applications. The unit provides real-time particle-size analysis and is used in pharmaceutical manufacturing to monitor and control granulation, coating, and spray-drying processes. The first of the new options allows for the provision of installation/operational qualification (IQ/OQ) documentation together with a verification kit for checking measurement accuracy. The second option offers a unit with highly polished contact surfaces and includes material traceability documentation. The analyzer delivers size and velocity measurements for particles, granules, and pellets from 50 to 6000 µm in diameter. Light and compact, it can be used to monitor gravity-fed, pneumatically conveyed, and fluidized streams. It is inserted directly into a process line or unit and is easily integrated with existing systems for automated control. An intrinsically safe version, IPP-70-SE, is also available.
